Leslie Mann to play a 53-year-old Bond Girl?

American star Leslie Mann is reportedly set to play the Bond girl in the next edition of “James Bond” franchise. The Internet is buzzing with rumors that the actress best known for her roles in This Is 40 or Knocked Up could be cast as the female lead opposite Daniel Craig.

UPDATE 22/04/2024 : This story seems to be false. (read more)

The Oldest Bond girl ever

If she does sign on board Mann, who is set to turn 53 next year, would technically become the oldest Bond girl in the franchise's history. Honor Blackman, the previous holder of that title, was 39 when she played Goldfinger's Pussy Galore opposite Sean Connery's 33-year-old 007 in 1964.

“The producers have tried to get Leslie before, but she has never been available because of other commitments,” a source close to the production said about the actress. “The discussions have been going on for some time and they are working out the contract details now.”
